The equipment you need.
An efficient warehouse stores your inventory, allows for easy removal and additions of goods and it’s safe. There are basic warehouse needs and American Material Handling has them all. From a variety of pallet racking solutions to the smallest rack safety clips, we have you covered.
Storage Racking and Shelving:
Pallet Rack: Get those pallets off the floor. Remember, you have a lot more air than floor in your warehouse and that air is a lot cheaper. American Material Handling keeps all styles of uprights and beams to add to your existing components or to start from scratch.
Industrial Shelving: Industrial shelving is perfect for small item picking and storage in smaller spaces or mezzanine areas.
Cantilever: Cantilever is used for vertically storing bulky and long products like pipes, trusses, carpet, plasterboard, and lumber.
Gravity Flow Racks: When you have lots of inventory items and want the flexibility of lower volume case picking or high volume split case picking, gravity flow racks are the best option. Typically used in pick modules where first in first out inventory solutions are needed.
Drive Thru: Condensed last in, first out storage solution. A high density solution that consolidates storage into a single footprint that’s perfect for smaller square footage warehouses.
Flex Conveyor: This type of conveyor is portable and can be used when different load and discharge points are required. The can curve for versatility and also collapse to conserve space when not in use. Great for truck loading and unloading and temporary shipping and packing stations
Gravity: Great for moving boxes, pallets, cartons, totes, and skids effectively with minimal employee effort. It’s very cost effective since gravity is free and maintenance is minimal! Gravity conveyor is great for workstations and pick modules
Powered: Powered conveyor is a great option for supply chain transitions and manufacturing because it can be customized to pick, transfer, and deliver product at specific times and locations. It is often used when highly automated warehousing applications are needed. Initial costs can be intimidating but usually pays you back by reducing labor costs and optimizing real estate space.
Dock Plates: A bridge between the loading trailer and the dock
Dock levelers: Used to level the dock and adjust to different trailer heights
Yard Ramps: A yard ramp is a bridge for getting lift equipment from the ground to the loading dock
Dump Hoppers: Great for dumping bulky items with the use of a forklift
Guard Rail and Bollards: These heavy-duty rails and barriers are an economical way to protect expensive machinery, building columns, inventory, and of course your employees.
Handrails: Used to make overhead walkways, mezzanines, and high traffic walking areas safe
Wire Modular Partitions: Wire enclosures provide extra security in designated areas. Great for tool rooms, important equipment cages, hazardous waste areas, and data server and equipment space.
Wire Decking: Used in pallet racking for increased product storage flexibility and safety. It can store pallets, open, and split cases. Available in many sizes and easy to install.
Pallet Supports: Less versatile, but also less expensive than decking, pallet supports are designed to prevent pallets from falling between the beams. These supports provide “insurance” from damaged or irregular pallets and forklift driver error.
Column and Aisle Protectors: Warehouses are active. Protect your racking and inventory with column and aisle protectors. Taking safety measures relieves stress and allows you to pay attention elsewhere.
Lift and Transport Equipment
Pallet Jacks: Pallet Jacks are an affordable way to lift and move pallets manually or electrically
Carts, Hand Trucks and Dollies: There are a variety of carts and dollies that help move boxes and smaller inventory items manually
Other Lift Equipment: Scissor lifts and forklift platforms are designed to lift employees and pallet stands and scissor lift tables are designed to lift pallets and product
Bins and Containers:
Bins, Dividers, and Totes: Typically made of durable plastic, bins, dividers and totes are a great way to store and protect small and medium sized products. They help with organization, space optimization, and cleanliness and are a must for smaller product order fulfillment applications
Wire Baskets: These heavy duty industrial baskets are stackable and transportable and work great storing heavier parts and products. Products stored in wire baskets are visible and can be washed when needed. Collapsible baskets work great for return shipping costs savings.
Scales: Use scales to weigh boxes, pallets, and products accurately
Strapping and Banding Equipment: Used to band and bundle bulky products for storage and shipment
Stretch Wrap Machines: Used for wrapping parcels, boxes, and containers to protect from dust and damage.
Packing Tables: Packing tables are essential for sorting and packing goods before shipment
